S636 Argonaute

Postby Helderluiss » Wed Jan 13, 2010 3:17 pm

Hi

I´ve been building this for two or tree years in the middle of other projects that have been taken all my time, but now is time to grab it and finish it.
The actual step is covering the model with aluminium to recreate the details of the hull and all the damages, previous steps can be seen here:

Also I would like to request to anyone images of the keel of this sub, it as some panels as you can see in the image below that I cannot figure out there position and a photo of it would certainly help.

There is a 1/32nd scale boat of this class being constructed on SubPirates. Steve Reichmuth is the modeler. He is very, very knowledgable on this boat. Please take a peek at this thread. I am sure Steve would be most happy to help you in any way he can!

Thanks for the pictures Thor and Steve that sent them by email , I already have that images but they don´t give the best perspective, for example in the image 1 the panels seem to be closed because of the way the photo have been taken but in the picture below they seem to be a little more distant ones from the others.

A better picture is nedded, but it seems to be almost impossible, turist are not interested on the bottom of the sub :mrgreen:

Do you think all the openings are plated up to keep creatures from moving in? :?:
Some of these openings will probably want to be left open on a working sub.

Contact Antoine! I am sure he knows someone who may be able to go there and shoot pictures of exactly what you need.

I already done that some time ago and Antoine even told me that he would go to the Argonaute taking some images but then he never get in touch again.
I send him a couple of emails after without response, one or two years ago, I don´t know if he change email or something happened, I hope everything is OK with him and he come back soon to help me on this. Does he have recent posts in any forums?

hi gents,

still breathing still alive.
just miles away from RC subs lately. ;)

3 kids and life will change forever...until they leave home, then life changes again with this empty space and heart you wanna fill. lol

IF I have time for you Helder, I'll do those long awaited photos. No promise.

Prepare to dive.
Dive ! Dive ! Dive !

Over.

Hi my friend,

No news for the moment. No time to go at the museum... :(
When I say no time that's not an excuse, my schedule is just crazy...
